A Pause

Poem By C.F. van Niekerk

A Pause

Like ambient pause of bird in flight,
Reflection in a pond reveals its might.
The same am I if touched by the divine,
Complete in me…entwine.
Strongest breath of pity frail,
Holding on to reach the veil.
Foretold by poets' verse in time,
Caused many fools to frown.
The life in death and death in life,
So great to know the cause…
All you hold is hearts contend,
Life needs but a pause.

(Autumn 2000)

I we love why do we fight?

Naivety In Shadows

Naivety in Shadows

The simple and naive are the powerful indeed,
For the other has their boundaries set by experiences met.
